Male-pattern baldness, clinically known as Androgenetic alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss in men effecting an estimated 40 million males in the U.S. & Canada, typically by the time they reach their 50's.

Symptoms usually appear first as a receding hairline, or in sudden hair loss from the crown of the head. For the direct cause, you can look to family genetics - from either the mother's or father's side of the family. Women may also be effected by similar symptoms called female-pattern baldness evidenced by hair loss or thinning over the entire scalp.

Popular treatments include and over-the-counter topical remedy, minoxidil (Rogaine) for both men and women, or finasteride (Propecia) which is available by a prescription in pill form for men only.

Classified as a B vitamin, biotin has also shown to be beneficial when taken as a supplement by those with a marked deficiency of the nutrient. Surgical treatments include hair transplants in which hair follicles from a different part of the body are grafted onto the balding area, with micrografts and minigrafts placed just behind the hairline.
